May 17–19, 24–26, 31 & June 1–2, 2013
by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Director: Mark David Skura
Upon first glimpse, the Sycamore family may seem mad; but it’s not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightfully kookie people are the unhappy Kirbys.
Tony, the Kirbys’ son, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by the Kirbys demonstrates to Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. The Sycamores, however, find it hard to understand her point of view. Tony knows the Sycamores are right, and will not give up on Alice; in the end, Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, and happiness ensues. You Can’t Take It With You, one of the classic comedies of modern American theatre, is sure to delight Players’ audiences once again.
Having directed Aurora Players’ productions of See How They Run, Lend Me A Tenor, Catch Me If You Can, and Over My Dead Body, Mark David Skura brings his directing acumen to this comedic chestnut. AP credits include 110 In The Shade, The Mikado, The Fantasticks! (also with Springville Players and Playhouse Theatricals) and The Music Man (AP Best Actor Award). He’s also appeared in The Road To Bethlehem with Alleyway Theatre, and has been the Director of Drama at St. Francis High School for almost 30 years.
